Sugar Free Italian Ice

Any good brands you can recommend?

Dr A says you can have berries as a dessert or SF jello. I don't like berries, and want something cold so I was thinking sf italian ice.

But NOT Rita's. a small has 14 carbs! (plus mine only has sf pink grapefruit

So has anyone found any really good LC ones??

Hey Mom! I know thi isn't a real answer to your question but..I love italian ice and have made treats to curb my cravings.

Sugar Free Grape Kool Aid - freeze them yourself. So yum!
Sugar Free Jello - Chill until 1/2 firm and then use the mixer to beat in heavy cream. When it looks light and fluffy put it in the freezer. I checked on mine in 45 minutes and it was good. Still a little soft but tastes like a frozen yogurt

I use Chrystal Light and make it in a cake pan then freeze and scrap with a fork. Taste likd Italian ice. I put in plastic containers for later. Orange is the best

The Food Network website has some great granita recipes, so I'm sure you could go through and replace the sugar with the sweetener of your choice! Easy to make, and sooooo good! I love making them with cold coffee or the dessert teas!

Go to walmart and buy one of those $15-20 ice shavers and pour crystal light over it. You can make CL 1/2 strength.

This isn't Italian ice, but it's frozen and berry-oriented.

Put some frozen berries that have been thawed for about 45 minutes in the blender and pulse until you have lots of berry chunk, put in a bowl, and stir them up with fresh whipped cream. Very delicious and decadent!

Hmm, a snow cone making machine may not be a bad idea. My kids could eat them made with Davinci's SF syrups too.

They make sugar free syrup to use with the ice shaver. My grandkids love snow cones. They ask for them all year. I tell them it is only a summer treat. I also like to pour a margarita over the shaved ice made with tequila and zilch margarita mix - available on netrition.

sno cone syrup

You can make any kid of snow cone syrup with Splenda. Mix a quart of water and sweeten with Splenda to taste. Add a little cornstarch to thicken if you like. Separate into containers to be flavored. I use picnic ketchup bottles or empty water bottles with the little spout on the top. Add flavor and a little food coloring to each bottle. Banana flavor gets yellow food coloring, etc. Pour over shaved ice and voila! This is the best!

I think I'm going to try freezing Crystal Light into ice cube trays and grinding them with my snow cone machine and see what happens. I will keep you posted . . .

I have an ice shaver and top it with DaVincis. I have watermelon flavored right now. It's fun.
